In the spirit of the What is a Word™/Phrase™ series started by JLee, a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles.


If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Workman Word™.
Use the examples below to find the rule.

Workman Words™ Not Workman Words™
LONE WOLF
FUEL TANK
PEE URINE
FUNNY JOKE
CONVEYING FEELINGS
THRASH BIN
ENJOY LIFE
INVOKE SPELL
STRAW LAST
HARD CORE

The CSV version:

Workman Words™,Not Workman Words™
LONE,WOLF
FUEL,TANK
PEE,URINE
FUNNY,JOKE
CONVEYING,FEELINGS
THRASH,BIN
ENJOY,LIFE
INVOKE,SPELL
STRAW,LAST
HARD,CORE

These are not the only examples of Workman Words™; many more exist.

What is the special rule these words conform to?

In contrast, all the non-Workman words don't form an unbroken line on it.
